Insider reviews & perspectives

Comfort Life Review

stories

Queens Estate Retirement Residence offers Metta Lifestyles’ experience and expertise coupled with a brand new building. These factors combine to create a very welcoming, caring community. Even though this is a relatively new building, when you walk in the door you’ll see how the comfortable setting here encourages people to feel relaxed, make friends and make this their home.

We love the generous lounge spaces found throughout the building, ideal places to sit and enjoy the company of others or just relax. Staff is an important part of the friendly atmosphere, also, offering kind words and warm greetings to everyone they meet. One other unique aspect of this community is the ease of access from throughout the GTA, thanks to its close proximity to the 401 and the 400 as well as the nearby GO Station.

Testimonials and Stories

  • My mother has lived on the memory care floor at Queens Estate for nine months and is very well taken

    My mother has lived on the memory care floor at Queens Estate for nine months and is very well taken care of every day. The staff are kind and friendly and everyone from the PSWs who care for her to the chef in the kitchen know my mother and treat her with kindness and respect. Queens Estate was wonderful about procuring the covid vaccine and boosters in a timely fashion and maintains excellent hygiene to protect the health of all its residents. Most importantly, since moving in, my mother has been calm and content. There are many activities including art and music which she enjoys very much. Our family would strongly recommend Queen's Estate.

  • Staff were angels

    My mother was at Queens Estate for nearly two years (she was one of the first to move in after their opening). Staff were fabulous/angels. Adam, Tenzin and Vivian were particularly helpful though there were many others that should be recognized (I don't recall all of their names). Residents who had moved in from other retirement homes said that Queens Estate was an improvement for them. We used a consultant during our search for a home. The staff try really hard to come up with interesting activities to get the residents involved even during lockdown. You can see photos of this on the FB page. The blended model of support that respects the needs of residents is very helpful.

  • The staff are amazingly helpful

    Our father was a resident for 2 months while waiting for a placement in Long Term Care. Even though it was understood that Dad was only there temporarily, the staff went out of their way to ensure he was well supported, had a detailed care plan in place, and had his daily needs met. The staff are amazingly helpful, responsive to our questions and queries, and really patient with Dad. They are amazing! The building is also very pleasant - freshly renovated and furnished - with attention to details tied to the well-being of residents. When Dad left, the staff all gathered to say goodbye and wish him well. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

  • My mom started living again at 93 when she went to Queens Estate!

    My mom started living again at 93 when she went to Queens Estate. She is constantly dancing and singing. She loves the food and the staff are so patient and accommodating. It takes a lot of pressure off me when I saw how happy she is. She's making new friends as well as becoming acquainted with old friends.
    I would definitely recommend Queens Estate to anyone.
